Being in lockdown has been very difficult for most parents who have discovered what their kids are capable of.
The struggle was real for this mom who posted a picture of her son covered in Vaseline. She posted the picture to Facebook in the group #Imstaying with the caption:
"Day 17 of 35 #Imstaying regardless..."
Messages poured in from other social media users who could relate to what this mom went through. Some of the stories were from the current lockdown and others were stories of similar things that happened in the past.
Lisa Haggard: Oh boy. I know the exact feeling you went through when you found your little one covered in Vaseline. The look on your little one's face as well as the "evidence" covering him, instantly brought back memories of one Saturday morning 25 years ago of my son. He tried to wipe it off with the laundry that I had just neatly folded and packed away. Oh boy. Plus side - Your baba had a great time. Down side... You are going to go through a lot of dishwashing liquid etc to clean out the bath afterwards. Will keep you in my prayers. Stay strong."

Madeniya-Marlz Fynn Dickinson: ooh Bathong you ain't a mom with patience if you have experienced one of these Picasso's....either painting their faces, hair & bodies or smearing it on the bed linen or carpet...it seldom ends up on the wall...when you see the final work of art when you've managed to walk in on them you cant help trying to keep a serious face.

Colleen Van Reenen: Thanks little one for putting a smile on our faces - sorry mommy you got some serious cleaning up to do
Gail Hayes-Bean: Be grateful it wasn’t Vick’s smeared on wallpaper and door handles! My middle child did this.
